    Portopulmonary hypertension syndrome (PPHS) is a complication of portal hypertension where the substrate is micro-vessel lesions which are indicative of plexogenic arteriopathy. PPHS has not been linked to pulmonary schistosomiasis. We report, to the best of our knowledge for the first time, a...

    Mitral stenosis is associated with increased pulmonary artery pressure and resistance. Adrenomedullin, discovered in human pheochromocytoma tissue in 1993, has shown to dilate the pulmonary vessels and so may participate in the control of pulmonary circulation. In this study, we assessed the...
